From the steps of the Vatican to Catholic churches in Vancouver, New York and London, ITCCS groups commenced church occupations and the issuing of liens against Vatican property this week, as part of a Global Reclamation Campaign to enforce a Common Law Court sentence against heads of church and state, including the new Pope, Francis 1 – Jorge Bergoglio, and Queen Elisabeth Windsor.
Bergoglio, Windsor and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper are among those officials who have been lawfully banished from their communities and face standing Citizen Arrest Warrants.
And despite a massive pro-Vatican blitz in the corporate media, Catholic Bishops have begun to publicly break ranks as new divisions emerged in the church hierarchy.
In Albany, New York, Orthodox Catholic Bishop Timotheos has been charged by local police after he disseminated ITCCS statements to a Catholic congregation and called upon Catholics to refuse to fund the Vatican.
And in Dublin, acting head of the Catholic church in Ireland, Archbishop Diarmid Martin, refused to comment on the claim that his office has convened a secret conference of Irish Bishops to issue a “Home Rule” statement loosening their ties with the Vatican.
In London, high wire protestors displayed an “Arrest the Pope and the Queen” banner from an office tower facing Parliament, as other ITCCS activists served arrest warrants on the new Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, for destroying evidence of the mass graves of children at Anglican Indian schools in Canada.
And in Vancouver, ITCCS members and local indigenous leaders publicly reclaimed Holy Rosary Catholic church during Easter services.
“As a survivor of Catholic Genocide, I’m issuing a public lien against this building and claiming it for all native people” declared Cree elder Stee-mas, a survivor of two Christian internment camps. (Stee-mas will be interviewed on the ITCCS online program We the Jury this Saturday April 6 at 4 pm EST at www.blogtalkradio.com/wethejury)
“I invite all our people to take over this church and use it. And I am telling the Vancouver police they have to help us or stand aside because this is our jurisdiction”.
Similar ITCCS Easter actions occurred at churches in a dozen other nations including America, South Africa, Poland, France, Ireland, Italy and Germany.
An update and summary of the Campaign is provided in this Good Friday interview with ITCCS Field Secretary Kevin Annett, who is starting a ten week international speaking tour next week:
Kevin’s trip and the next cases being launched by the Court will be discussed this coming Saturday, April 6 on the upcoming ITCCS international bog radio program, We the Jury, featuring host Kevin Annett.
“We’ve broken the ice and set an example. The walls of church and crown are crumbling before our eyes. Now it`s up to everyone to learn again the habits of liberty, and seize back power from the convicted criminals in charge. For existing authority has now been lawfully replaced by the People.”
– Kevin Annett
